My wife told me I needed to head out of the house for a few hours today so she could wrap my Christmas gifts. I took this as an open invitation to drive up to Capone's.

The restaurant didn't open until 2:00 pm today (they appeared to be doing some renovation work at the restaurant) so my review is strictly of the bottle shop.

Capone's Bottle shop is small, but crammed from floor to ceiling with great beer. There's almost a Dickensian Old Curiosity Shop quality to the room which is thoroughly charming.

I was the only person in the shop at that time, so I had plenty of room to browse. Matt was friendly and helpful. He asked if there was anything in particular I was looking for and just chatted beer as I shopped.

The selection is fantastic. There were many beers I had not seen at other bottle shops in the Philadelphia area (Nogne O, Mikkeller, a full selection of AleSmith products and an impressive lineup of Belgians). I ended up with a nice haul consisting of AleSmith Speedway Stout, Stone 2009 Russian Imperial Stout, Stone Old Guardian, and Founders Backwoods Bastard. I thought the prices were reasonable and I'm always fine with paying good money for good beer.

All in all, Capone's is a great bottle shop for us beer geeks in the Philadelphia area. I look forward to going back again and again.

Handles are always the best-of-the-best. Great food. Drive an hour and thirty minutes once a week for the unbelievable - most excellent - beer and pasta dishes.

Great spot for hard to get beer. Prices are high compared to some of the other similar establishments. 6 oz pours of "rarer" beers can be had for much less at Pinnochios. I don't go often as it's a bit of a drive for me. Nice spot though.

While I've not been to one of the Special Events/Release Tastings Capone's organizes I have stopped here a few times for the beer shop. This review is pretty much to echo what most other reviewers have said. This is one of the places outside of Philly to visit when looking for a "few good bottles." The selection is large. Freshness is usually good. Service is helpful and knowledgable. Value is reasonable given they are located in PA.
